Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sisters Kate and M. Sarah Klise (creators of the Regarding the . . . series) launched their lively 43 Old Cemetery Road series in 2009 with Dying to Meet You, the story of the churlish, child-hating sixty-year-old childrens book author Ignatius B. Grumply, who rents an old Victorian mansion in Ghastly, Illinois, for the summer . . . only to find it already inhabited. Enter eleven-year-old Seymour Hope and the vivacious, “old as dirt” writer-ghost Olive C. Spence. The ensuing tale of unlikely roommates is cleverly, seamlessly told in letters, newspaper articles, Grumplys work-in-progress “Ghost Tamer” manuscript, and winning illustrations by M. Sarah Klise. Alternately poignant and side-splittingly funny—and full of writing and publishing jokes—this charming title was nominated for nine state book awards and named a Junior Library Guild selection.
Dont miss the next books in the series, including Over My Dead Body (Book 2) and Till Death Do Us Bark (Book 3).

Synopsis:

Ignatius B. Grumply moves into the Victorian mansion at 43 Old Cemetery Road hoping to find some peace and quiet so he can crack a wicked case of writer's block. But 43 Old Cemetery Road is already occupied by eleven-year-old Seymour, his cat Shadow, and an irritable ghost named Olive. It's hard to say who is more outraged. But a grumpy old ghost just might inspire this grumpy old man--and the abandoned kid? Well, let's just say his last name's Hope.

Sisters Kate and M. Sarah Klise, the creators of the award-winning Regarding the . . . series, offer up this debut volume in a clever epistolary series told in letters, drawings, newspaper articles, a work-in-progress manuscript, and even an occasional tombstone engraving.
